The Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois is proud to announce that the village of Schaumburg is one of the first municipalities in the nation to be recognized as a Better Business Town.
Better Business Town is a new designation from the BBB to identify highly engaged local communities that actively promote an ethical and trustworthy business marketplace.
Schaumburg was selected because of its outstanding and dynamic business community. Schaumburg is the largest center of economic development in the state of Illinois, outside the city of Chicago, and is home to nearly 5,000 businesses that employ more than 80,000 people.
Also, Schaumburg always appears in the BBB’s Top 10 list for total number of BBB Accredited Businesses, as well as total number of monthly consumer visits to BBB.org.
Steve Bernas, President and CEO of the Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois said, “Schaumburg is one of the most vibrant business communities in Illinois, so it comes as no surprise that many of their businesses are BBB Accredited.”
Bernas added, “Trust and integrity are essential values of successful businesses, and the influential BBB Seal is the surest way to show customers they are in good hands. Our data shows that Schaumburg customers know the importance of researching a business on BBB.org before committing their hard-earned dollars.”
As a Better Business Town, the village of Schaumburg and the BBB have committed to work together in educating consumers and supporting businesses that commit to the highest ethical standards.
“It is an honor for the village of Schaumburg to be recognized by the Better Business Bureau for this special designation,” said village President Tom Dailly. “We’re proud to see our local business community, as well as our residents, working together in support of a marketplace founded on trust and ethical business practices. Being named a Better Business Town further validates our commitment to supporting our businesses and providing every Schaumburg customer with an exceptional experience.”
“At the end of the day, we educate and connect customers with businesses they can trust,” said Steve Bernas. “It’s a simple concept, but when you consider that there are a quarter of a million businesses throughout Chicagoland and millions of consumers, it’s nice knowing the BBB Torch is there to light the way to a good business transaction.”
